Barron Hilton is a free man.
And the drunk driver has anyone but his sister to thank for it.
While Barron was released from jail last night around 5:50 p.m. PST, it wasn't due to the generosity or understanding of older sibling Paris Hilton:
She refused to pay his $20,000 bail.
Reportedly, the hypocritical Paris Hilton told Barron, "You're going to learn your lesson," while adding that she was "very upset and very disappointed in him" and letting him rot away in prison.
After all, Paris wasn't busted for DUI until she was 25, giving her the right to criticize 18-year old Barron Hilton.
In the end, Barron's friends had to hire a bail bondsman to spring their pal.
